Good day friends hows life ,spring is about to come and this has placed me so much into recycling mode as you will notice from my posts to come :)
Today i will share a simple idea on how to use the base of an empty plastic bottle as a gift pack for any occation like bithdays or as party favours ,use any goodies to fill ,sweets ,stationary items for kids or some small toys .
That's the stuff you will be needing
- an empty plastic bottle (i am using a small size bottle)
- paper knife
- beaded rubber band
- scrappy piece of cloth( cut out a circle big enough to cover the top of your bottle)
- a piece of scrape book paper
remove the label from the bottle and cut from some where in the mid of the bottle.
Now slightly melt the sides of the rim using a candle flame to avoid sharp edges,
cut a rubber band from one side and thread some colorful beads in it and then tie it off to make a beaded stretchy band to seal your gift pack.
That's it you have done your difficult part now is the fun part! just add in your goodies cover it with your fabric circle and place the beaded rubber band on it.I have also added a small paper circle on top with a birthday massage for a more interesting look ! but its optional .
Hummmm.... when talking about recycling ,dont you think it would be such a waste to through away the top part of the bottle ! Um ..... No there is a very clever use for that too :) Use it as a Kiev or funnel to fill in stuff to the bottles/containers you use in your home .......Or .....Yup there is another very interesting use for this part but i will share that with you all in my next post .....Till then SUSPENSE :)
Take care .....and see you soon
Friday fun party
